Foam Exposure Information

Foam Exposure Committee Mission Statement - -

To reduce firefighter / first responder exposures to perfluorinated chemicals used in firefighting foams in order to protect their health and lives. We will recommend a list of firefighting products for fire departments based upon testing, which we believe have no intentionally added fluorine. First responders should have immediate access to safer fluorine-free firefighting foams.
